Cape Verde names stadium after late Pele

Cape Verde has become the first country to name a stadium after Pele following FIFA president, Gianni Infantino’s call for every nation to do so.

The Prime Minister of the African country said they would name their national stadium – Estádio da Várzea – after the Brazil great who died aged 82 on December 29.

Cape Verde, which is made up of a group of islands to the west of the main African continent in the Atlantic Ocean, shares Portuguese as a common language with Brazil.

The official Cape Verde government website said that the executive had already notified FIFA of its intention to change the name of the stadium. PUNCH
